On November 9th, 2016, our newly nominated 45th President, Donald Trump, grabbed the American vote by the pussy #TRIGGERED

Oddly, this occurred during the early hours of 11/9, with many calling it the worst catastrophe in American history since 9/11. Those numbers are now doubly #TRIGGERING

Even Trump’s son Barron couldn’t believe it. Catch him here eye rolling his father during the acceptance speech, looking fatigued and #TRIGGERED

Russian President Vladamir Putin gave a speech showing his elation about Trump’s victory, excited to compare notes on hair loss and bombing Syria #TRIGGERED

Thousands of protestors gathered throughout the country yesterday to mixed reviews. While Madonna, Michael Moore, and Tyler Oakley participated in the rally, other pseudo-celebs like Bethanny Frankel called the crowds “moronic.” Girl, you’ve got me #TRIGGERED

The NRA has proclaimed that American voters “sent a loud and clear message” about their right to own guns. Looks like the country is going to remain, quite literally, #TRIGGERED

Just in case you were unsure of exactly what type of American would be celebrating the dangerous empowerment of an offensively unfiltered demagogue, former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke took to Twitter to rejoice #TRIGGERED

All jokes aside, V sees this election as an earthshattering tragedy. There’s a petition for the Electoral College to change their predetermined vote and elect Hillary Clinton as president on December 19th. Get yourself #TRIGGERED and sign the petition, here.
